Mission Statement

Rooted in God's love and care, EUMA provides life-changing opportunities for those who live at the margins of homelessness to become vital members of our community.

About EUMA (Erie United Methodist Alliance)

EUMA Highmark Walk proceeds will benefit the Our Neighbors' Place Seasonal Shelter - a community effort ensuring everyone has a warm, safe place to sleep during Erie's winter season. A project of the faith community, the seasonal shelter operates on a rotating basis among several downtown Erie churches every two weeks during the winter season. Guests are provided two simple meals, the opportunity to shower, a place to sleep, chaplain services and are introduced to available homeless services. During the 2018-19 season, 5,890 bed nights were provided to 342 homeless men and women, and 35 individuals were moved from homelessness to a permanent home of their own.Take steps to end homelessness by walking with EUMA and supporting the Our Neighbors' Place Seasonal Shelter. Any funds over and above the ONP annual need will be used to end homelessness through other EUMA programs.
